    Great shoe tips and I am a big fan of Clarks! I don’t have the prettiest ones but they work!

  2. Lauren C says:

    You know you go through wedding shoes when you’ve already owned 4 out of the 5 brands you listed haha! Clarks and Dr. Scholls are the ones I’ve been the happiest with so far. Definitely a helpful post!!

    I am so intrigued by this post! I thought you wore Tieks! I have a few pairs for every day life but I can never get through more than 3 hours on a wedding day before needing to change my shoes. TOMS have been the only thing I can get through a wedding without any pain, but they’re not the cutest. I’ll have to try some of these! Thank you for sharing!

  4. These I such great wedding vendor tips! I was just looking for a pair of shoes this week so I know which I’ll be buying 🙂

  5. The cap toe crocs are my favorite, I wear them to every wedding! Looks like I need to give the Dr. Scholl’s a try as well.

    I love Cole Haan’s ballet flats with the Nike Air technology. I go through about a pair a year and clock on average 9-11 miles an event day in them. They’re leather so they breathe which is also fantastic. They’re a perfect ‘go to’ wedding day shoe!

  7. Casi says:

    These are great recommendations for wedding photographers and taking care of their feet and knees and backs (all which take a hard toll during a wedding day. Since I recently suffered a back injury and having discussed it with my June bride, I am wearing a pair of sandals for the ceremony and a pair of Nike Free 5.0 sneakers during the reception – hard floors only back my fragile back worse. Thank you for all these suggestions, Nat! You are one for giving out your research!

    These are great tips! Uncomfortable shoes are pretty much the story of my life. I normally bring 2-3 pairs to every wedding because my feet get tired of them! I have found that my Toms have worked the best for my flat-footed self. 🙂

  9. Katie says:

    Ah, this is great!! I actually wear dressy sandals most of the time because my feet swell when I’m standing for long periods of time (gross, I know!) and those seem to work the best for me comfort and style wise 🙂 I’ll have to check out some of these though for winter weddings!

    Great post! This is a topic that is so practical and useful, I love it! Last wedding season I tried out Josef Seibel’s sandals, and they worked awesome!

    I could totally tell in my body and back if I didn’t wear them. They are a bit more expensive, but so, so worth it!

  11. Kelly says:

    These are great! I’m only 4’10 and have tinnnnyyyyy kid size feet.. Unfortunately, none of these offer sizes that will fit my feet.. Do you know if any of these make “kid” shoes? I wear a size 2 in children’s =/ Such an unfortunate issue to have as my feet are always killing me and I can’t find a shoe that will work!

  12. Kat says:

    This is great, Nat! I also love my Toms for set-up and my Tieks!! They are pricey but WORTH the investment!!!:)

  13. Ah I love this! Such helpful tips! I’m a total wimp when it comes to shoes (blame it on the Californian past where I only wore sandals…)

  14. michelle says:

    I might have to look into a pair! thank you for the review!

  15. Elizabeth G says:

    YAY Chesapeake Strings photo shout-out!! Super helpful article for wedding pros but when I saw the strings photo of my husband and group I got so excited 😉

  16. Best blog post EVER! It’s like the question each spring which shoes should I wear for this wedding Season!

  17. Alex says:

    This came just in time for my busy season! I love my Aerosols but I’m going to give the Dr. Scholl’s a try! Thanks for sharing!

  18. These all look like great suggestions! I found some really comfy elegant black flats from DKNY last year and hopefully they’ll last throught this season too 🙂

  19. Stephanie says:

    This is such a great blog post! I spent most of the wedding season last year eliminating shoes I could wear to weddings by trial and error. I am definitely going online today to purchase one of the pairs mentioned above! Thanks for doing the research for us!

  20. Jess Bulloss says:

    Need these shoes!! Totally ordering some!!

  21. *immediately starts online shopping because these are cute and comfy*

    Great post Natalie!

  22. Liesl Kammer says:

    Fantastic tips!! I am in LOVE with my crocs and suggest them to everyone! They’re nice on my feet and they actually have some pretty cute styles. I am going to look into the clarks too!! Thank you!!

  23. Sarah says:

    Awesome roundup thank you! I’ll order a few of these. I have tried the Crocs but found the rubber not breathable and gave me blisters, though otherwise they were comfy. My go-to is Dansko Mary Jane’s, they give a good amount of height for my stubby legs but still feel like a flat with the wide base plus my feet still feel brand new at the end of the day.

  24. Bought a pair yesterday! Can’t WAIT to try them out this weekend. 🙂

  25. Rhiannon says:

    Yup. After 19 hour wedding days (for real) it SURE does help to have a good pair of shoes on your feet. Love this round up, sweet friend!

  26. Emily says:

    All of these shoes are so cute! I am definitely going to be checking the Clarks and Dr. Scholls out before wedding season begins! Thank you for such a helpful post!

  27. Love this post! Our whole office just went and got our wedding season flats thanks to your post we picked out the cute crocs AND they are 50% off deal of the day on Amazon today!

  28. Lisa says:

    Thank you for the tips…sadly I have TINY feet and they don’t come in my size. Argh!

  29. Katie Lewis says:

    I also recommend Oka-B Taylor flats. They are sustainably made in America. They are like classy jelly shoes, look like patent leather, and are dishwasher safe. I wore a pair for 9 hours of coverage at a wedding last weekend and I had no foot pain at the end of the day! They also are available at Amazon for about $40.

  30. ADORE my Dexflex! Stumbled upon them ironically while looking for some formal heels for a gala! Obsessed!

  31. I wore the Dexflex flats all last season and they were the comfiest shoes I’ve found yet and I got tons of compliments on the nude ones. I’m usually a 5.5 or 6 and wear a 5 in these if that’s helpful to anyone. Thanks for this post! 🙂

  32. Jennifer says:

    Oh my goodness! THANK YOU! I’ve been wishing for a post like this for so long! I’ve had some luck with a pair of crocs I bought last year, but I have such a tough time with shoes and that “I got hit by a bus” feeling is exactly how I describe the day after a wedding! lol

  33. Kayla says:

    This is fantastic! Very similar to shoes I have tried to wear before, just didn’t try the right kind apparently! Can’t wait to look for some of these! Thank you for sharing!

  34. Sarah says:

    This is the post I have been searching for! I would love to hear about what you wear too. Specifically for warmer weddings when pants and a blazer don’t sound so appealing.
